hostage. that's senate leader harry reid there. house minority leader nancy pelosi rejected the plan. did the republicans make a real effort here or was this a gimmick as nancy pelosi said? >> the most important thing for republicans is they are re-ordering the three fiscal conflicts that the country has ahead. the three conflicts are are the sequestration and the deep cuts to domestic and military spending and the end of the funding of the government that could result in a govern shutdown and the sent ceiling fight and the debt ceiling fight has potentially the worst consequences for the economy. so the republicans thought instead of taking the debt ceiling fight first and potentially doing real harm, let's move it to the end of the first of three standoffs. >> and sequestration, of course, also a major issue. do republicans think they can win on -- on major cuts to domestic and military spending? >> probably not. i don't think they have a lot of betting power here at all. the debt ceiling was the biggest bargaining chip that they had and they just moved it to basically a totally differe

. pretty negative response from nancy pelosi, the democratic leader in the house. this pros poll sas, she says, does not relieve the uncertainty faced by the middle class. this is a gimmick unworthy of the challenges we face and the national debate we should be having. the message for the american people is clear, no gauges, no default. is there a lack of coordination in the response between pelosi and the white house? >> look, i think both sides are true. it's positive that the republicans and the congress are backing off of that threat. it's also true that we can't go in three-month increments having a debate about whether we're going to pay our bills and whether we're going to jeopardize the full faith and credit of the united states of america. we need to work this through, find a long-term solution for this and bring some certainty to the economy. >> i'm not sure i'd say it's an entirely positive statement from the white house saying that, gee, republicans need to stop holding a gun to americans' head. that's true. but of course that's not what is happening. we've spent the money and
